Introducing Public Points Rewards

Hey Community, 

 

We are happy to announce the launch of Public Points! 

 

Starting on January 25, 2022, Public Mobile customers who activate, will automatically be part of Public Points. This means that customers who activated prior to January 25, 2022 will remain on old Public Rewards without any change to the way or amount earned. Don’t worry, these customers can still join Public Points.

What is Public Points? 

Public Points is our newly improved rewards program. Sure, we loved Public Rewards, but in our endless pursuit of making things better for our customers, we’ve given it a makeover and made it more flexible than before. 

 

With Public Points you can:

  • Earn points. Public Points are so easy to earn, you’ll be rich in no time.
  • Redeem points. We make redeeming points simple. 1 point earned = 1 dollar when redeemed.  
  • Start saving. Redeem points on things that matter to you - like money off your bill, free add-ons, or the chance to win awesome prizes. 
  • Join whenever you want. Learn more here

 

Ways to earn Public Points:

With Public Points, earning points is so easy, you  can do it just by saying, "I'm in." And that's actually one of the ways you can earn points – by joining Public Points. There are a lot of other ways you can earn too:

As if welcome points didn't sound nice enough, you'll also earn 1 point for every month you've been with Public Mobile

5% back for every dollar spent

Anniversary Points

10 points

For every twelve months you stay with us, you’ll earn 10 points. Think of it like an anniversary present!

Refer-a-Friend

1 point every 30 days / active friend you referred

Refer a friend to Public Mobile, and you’ll receive one point for every 30 days your friend stays with us. 

Your friend will also receive a one-time $10 credit when they use your referral code.

Unlike some other rewards programs, there isn’t a specific way or time limit to cash-in yourpoints. When and how you redeem your points is entirely up to you! Just keep in mind that 1 point earned is valued at 1 dollar when redeemed. Really, that’s it!

@Tiprix It's the "remain on old without any change to the amount earned" that confused me. Technically the increase would be a change to the amount earned! I am probably overthinking things!

HI @J_PM   So, in this new Point system, people have to collect 15 points before they can use it towards their bill payment?   So, I cannot spent 14 points for $14 ?  

 

And do I have to spend in multiple of $15 only?  ie, $15, $30, $45?

 

If my plan is $25 and I have 30 points, I have a choice to spend just 15 points for $15 off or 30 points for $30 off?   

If I spent 30 points for $30, the $5 will be left as Available Fund as before?

@J_PM  This is an intriguing revamp of PM rewards.

Could PM possibly make an online version of the rewards calculator where we can enter our numbers, as an alternative to the downloadable Excel file?  Not everyone has MS Excel or an equivalent alternative installed.

@z10user4

1.  Thanks for info on Calculator, helped me understand the new point system a lot more

2.  Sill not clear if changing profile will automatically switch to new point system.  Like @DryWater, I too will get approx. 30-40% less with new point system.

 

For now, comparing OLD vs NEW sytem (for myself):

1.  Autopay($2/mth) vs. Points-back(5%/mth) - anyone with phone plan less than $40 (@5%=$2) will get less.

2.  Loyalty ($1/yr, max $5) vs. Loyalty/Aniversary(max. 10pt/yr) - a lot less.  e.g. I joined 5 years ago, currently get $60/year vs. first time conversion 60 points(one-time), then ONLY maximum 10 pt on Anniversary date(once per year) . . . . . i.e. 2nd year and all years after, I'll get $50/yr less

3.  Old system AUTOMATICALLY takes money from account/CC for monthly fee, new system needs to "apply points", monthly? (one needs to sign into account every month? eek!)

4.  Referal bonus:  old system max out when # of referrals reach your monthly fee, new system is unlimited.

Hi @Tahiti 

No, you won't be switched to the new point system if you do not opt-in yourself.  If you do nothing, you stay with the old system

 

@z10user4   Loyalty: 10 points each anniversary; no increases with time is my understanding


>>> ALERT: I am not a CSA. Je ne suis pas un Agent du soutien à la clientèle.

@Psygineer  If you stay on the current plan Loyalty continues to increase up to $5/30 days.

Your "For Anniversary: is that 10 points each year? ie. 10 points at the end of one year, 20 points at the end of two years etc. ie. not just 10 points as each year goes by."

== every year, u only get maximum 10 points on anniversary date, once per year.  Check the calculator for year 2(cell C25), stay at 10 points(cell C24).

 

@Psygineer 

Your "I am curious if we are on the old system if we will still get an extra $1 per year we were here added on our anniversary. I've been here 4 or so years, so still have at least one or two more increase coming before I hit the $5 cap."

== Yes, if u stay with PM, your Loyalty bonus will increase from current $4 to $5.  Check calculator under column B Old Reward, year 2 is $12(cell B25) more than year 1(cell B24)

Jade! Things are a lot more clear now. A question on the following excerpt of your announcement.


"My Rewards is your new home for all things rewards - all your points are kept in one neat, little place. Simply sign in with your My Account information to start earning and spending points."


Question: As an old customer, who is not desiring to join the New Rewards Program, do I still need to log in to the Rewards Program hosted by TELUS (screenshot below), or just do nothing?

@Tahiti  So far the only way you can join the points programme is to manually opt in; once joined it links to your account username.
